Since assuming my new post last November 2009, there were things which I dropped like hot potatoes. Not because I wanted to, but because I had to…due to lack of time. Moreover, I had to focus my full attention and concentration on my new assignment.
Here are some of them:
1. MyungMin International. This is the International Fan Club for Kim Myung Min that I helped build with some good friends. We started brainstorming sometime January 2009 and the club was born March. We then launched different projects as the months progressed and we managed to get in touch with KMM and his management. Imagine our joy to learn that KMM and the management are open to the possibility of a collaboration. We launched the website on KMM’s birthday last October. We never expected that membership would blow up. My last count right before I became busy with work, there were about more than 100 members. My guess is, there are close to 200 members already. Just before Christmas, I received word that MyungMin International or MMI has received its official status. I’m really ecstatic about this. I miss my work there. I miss the girls, my fellow international fans. I wish I had the time to be involved again. But, time is not on my side. I’m afraid to commit and not be able to do something for the group. I hope that I’ll be able to clear some tasks at work so that I can visit freely the club, the site and the forum. I MISS MMI! And it hurts really…
2. Fangirling about Kim Myung Min. I miss him totally. Since I’m inactive at MMI, I don’t hear news about KMM. Good thing, Michi, a very good friend and fellow MMI-er, posts news at Facebook. Once in a while, I do receive news about him. I miss doing fan work for him.
3. Watching Korean dramas. My friends know that I’m a Korean drama addict. I would watch one series after another. Or if I’m in my hyper and excitable self, I would watch two or three series simultaneously. The last series that I was able to finish was “Accidental Couple/Six Months/The Fool” starring the awesome Hwang Jung Min and that was in May 2009! I remember, I still have to finish Kim Myung Min’s 104 episode “Immortal Admiral Yi Soon Shin.” I have finished 46 episodes already, 58 to go!
I really, really miss indulging in my Korean addiction. I wish that I would finally find the time to do it.
